    The same shit everyone else has.
    Offset is going to be 100% dependent on wheel width.

    You wanna worry more about backspace since is gonna determine how much clearance there is between the inner edge of the wheel and the suspension.

    Et 0 on an 8” wheel vs 9” wheels is gonna fit completely different. The offset is the same but the 9” wheel has .5” more backspace moving closer to the suspension than the 8” et 0.

    If you go with an 8" wide wheel, 0 offset will work fine and keep it tucked in a bit. An 8.5 or 9" wheel should be -6 or -12 offset. If you want it to stick out more then go with -19 to -25 offset but that will probably rub the cab mount.

    My wheels are 17x8.5 with -10 offset and 305 tires so you can see they stick out a bit and they rub on the mount a little at full lock.

    No, I have the SPC UCA's which help push the wheel forward. Those wheels with the -25 offset really stick out pretty far which is why they rub. My truck had the 16x8 with 0 offset but also had 1.25" wheel spacers and they rubbed so I removed the spacers. I sold those wheels and got the 17x8.5 that I have now.
